Report illegal dumping

Illegal Dumping

How do I make a report?

If you encounter illegal dumping, you can report it using the NSW EPA hotline 131 555. Illegal dumping incidents reported via the NSW EPA hotline are assigned to the Sydney Metropolitan Regional Illegal Dumping Squad (RID Squad).

The Sydney Metropolitan RID Squad was established in 2015 as a regional approach to combating illegally dumped rubbish by identifying both the origin and dumping locations of illegally dumped rubbish across Sydney.

The Sydney Metropolitan RID Squad allows for a coordinated, regional approach to assist Bayside Council in managing the issue of illegal dumping by enhancing enforcement and engagement activities.

What should I include in my report?

When reporting illegal dumping incidents please provide as much detail as possible, including:

- Location of the illegally dumped material.

- Is the material blocking a road, driveway or private property?

- Is the material on public or private property?

- Description of the material.

- Date that you first noticed the material.

- Information about the dumper (e.g. name, licence plate number, description of dumper or vehicle).
